Numi collection by Konstantin Grcic for Mutina

December 4th, 2015 by retail design blog

This collection marks the beginning of the collaboration between Mutina and the German designer Konstantin Grcic. The result is a real conversation about art. An exploration of a world close to the company, which becomes the basis for the study of colors, materials and shapes.

Numi is made of signs, handmade signs, specific signs, imperfect signs which become black stroke’s geometries, sublimated through delicate contrasts and interpreted on a “soft” cement with natural and dusty pigments. Precise signs slowly become well-defined geometries, express through transparent and shiny patterns realized on a matt surface, creating delicate contrasts among matters.

The collection consists of squared tiles – 30×30 cm and 60×60 cm – with a different, partially glazed geometric form, in six different colors. These shapes create a pattern which magnifies into architecture.

Numini, in a smaller size – 5×5 cm – are based on the same principle, but they represent the sculptor soul of the collection, being characterized by a pattern that this time is created by the embossment and not by the glaze. The 6 geometries are carved on an extra matt background which reminds of Numi’s soft cement, emphasized by a smooth finishing and by the usual 6 dusty shades: light three-dimensional effects which create a linear movement. Mosaic pieces in size 5×5 cm, made in homogenous porcelain stoneware, are assembled with glue on sheets in 30×30 cm.
